Coach Blatt’s team improved its Turkish League record to 19 – 7 climbing to the fourth spot of the standings while the “Cimbom” fell to 17 – 10.
With Austin Daye (18 points) and Sinan Guler (18 points) taking care of scoring, Galatasaray was up by nine 36 – 45, early in the third quarter but their opponents answered with a very quick 9 – 0 run and eventually took the lead, 59 – 56 at the end of the period.
Dacka assumed total control the fourth quarter while everything was going downhill for the guests. When coach Ergin Ataman was ejected after a quarrel with the referees, nothing stopped Dacka from increasing its lead to double figures, 74 – 63 and become the boss until the final buzzer.
After this result the winners have a 20-7 record, good enough for the fourth spot in the standings, while Galatasaray is sixth (17-11) and lost valuable ground in the regular season race.
